It appears we've upset the Journal of Commerce — FreightWaves

FreightWaves’ editorial staff got a curious email from the executive editor at the Journal of Commerce this morning. One of our staff writers covered a story we’ve written about for months—the trucker strike that crippled Brazil and its aftermath—and had cited a quote that appeared in a JOC article, linking back to the original source. We’ve always respected the JOC as an institution (founded in New York in 1827) and thought JOC’s writers were some of the best in the industry. The Journal of Commerce clearly does not feel the same way about FreightWaves. In fact, JOC’s executive editor told us that their new intellectual property policy prohibits FreightWaves from ever quoting or linking to JOC’s articles again.
